Good Product

Good product. I've been using Pennzoil in my cars and trucks for decades. Never an oil related problem.


Quieted my new motor down

I decided to try Pennzoil Platinum 0W-20 for my 2018 Tahoe’s first oil change at 4000 miles.I usually dump the factory oil after 1000 miles, but, decided to wait longer this time. I was amazed at how quiet an already quiet motor got after the Pennzoil Platinum was put in and I started the vehicle. I could barely hear the motor, only exhaust. The motor seemed like it was suddenly broken in, with better acceleration. I was truly impressed. I just put Mobil 1 in my 2018 Acadia for it’s first oil change and while it also quieted the motor in it, I will be putting Pennzoil Platinum 5W-30 in it the next oil change. My initial impression is that I like the Pennzoil better than Mobil 1 based on my usage so far.


Decided to give it a try

I just put this Pennzoil Platinum in my 18 Tahoe today for its first oil change. Two things that I noticed. First, whatever little engine noise there was before the oil change, was now gone. You had to to really listen to hear the motor run, all you can hear now is exhaust. Second thing, the motor suddenly felt broken in. It feels looser now, easier to accelerate. It seems to me that it has good lubricating properties to it by the way it has quieted my motor, which was very quiet to begin with. Like I said, this is the first oil change, only 4000 miles. I like to get rid of the break in oil a little early. I have a feeling my Tahoe will like Pennzoil Platinum. I change my oil every 5000 miles..


The Very Best Oil

This is absolutely the Best oil for the money. Sure Amsoil is a better pure oil, but you are paying 2x for it. The Pennzoil Platinum though is the very best oil compared to Mobil 1, Castrol Edge, Valvoline, types. The Platinum is made from NATURAL GAS , not crude oil base stock. So it starts out clean. I have been using it since it cam out and never had any issues. Running as much as 8,000 miles with a top notch filter. I have experienced no oil burn off. You can get this as low as $12 for a 5 qt jug, if you catch it on sale for $22 and then the $10 rebate. Just can't beat the pricing and oil!! I have nothing but praise for this oil and I do not work for Pennzoil :)


Top notch oil at its price

I'm very big on doing used oil analysis and from my findings through blackstone labs (oil analysis company) this oil works amazing. I have L83 Chevy V8 5.3L engine based on what I see in my reports I run my oil approximately 6k miles and results show little wear per mile in iron, copper and lead. Based on their universal averages they see across this engine type. It does its job well. You combine this oil with quality filter like royal purple, fram ultra, wix and you really can't go wrong. And honestly blackstone says I have about TBN (additive package in oil) of 2.5 at 6k miles they estimate this oil can do 8k-9k maybe more until it hits 1.0 TBN. I'll stick to my 6k personally but it's capable depending on engine type. (Don't extend intervals this far without analysis)
